    Hi everyone, I am 34 and grew up watching tos and all the series of the 90s (the only good parts of my childhood :). I am a always rewatching one series or another. I moved to a new country in the pandemic and haven't really managed to connect with anyone in real life so, I thought I'd give this a try. I love sci-fi and just hoping to make new online friends here. I love endlessly discussing trek, what can I say?

    Glad to be here with y’all! Weekend TOS and TNG growing up with my Dad locked in a lifelong love!

    Hey all. I'm closing very quickly on 60 y.o. and started watching TOS in the 70s, been a fan ever since. I love all iterations of Trek (I take IDIC seriously). Hoping to connect with fellow fans and discuss what is clearly a golden age of Trek right now.

    Yup. Some discussions never get old, and Trek is one of my favorite topics. Glad you're here!
    Welcome aboard!
    Very cool. Welcome. Looking forward to your perspective.

    Long-time lurker, first-time poster here.

    I really enjoy the conversations that occur here, and I felt like signing up and making an account so I could participate.

    My favorite Treks are TNG and DS9, but I really like SNW. Unfortunately DIS doesn't do it for me and I find it unwatchable, but if other people like it, then bully for them.

    A final parting shot: Janeway left a trail of chaos in her wake. I was a Delta Quadrant resident, I'd be angry at her for her rampage.*ducks*

    :lol: @ the Janeway comment Zapp.

    I love that, while you don't care for Disco, you're cool with others enjoying it. I see too many gatekeepers on twitter and elsewhere pontificate on what is "true Trek". If you like it all Trek, cool. If you like most, or some, or just a little, cool. You're a fan and we can find common ground.

    Watching and talking about something I hate sounds exhausting. Don't like a show? Don't watch it! There's plenty of Trek out there for almost every taste, and that's great. As they say, Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.

    Hello everybody,
    I'm a 54 french trekkie, new to this forum. I'm a TOS / TNG / DS9 fan a bit less VOY fan.
    My favourite show is ENT (i'm probably the only one ^⁾). I really love the art direction and look of the show.

    Hello fellow Trekkies,

    I may be new to the forum, but I'm not new to Star Trek, since I grew up on The Next Generation and Voyager. I'm also a Star Wars fan, so the way this forum is set up is familiar to me (the forums on The Force.net are set up in a similar fashion). You'll know me as Force of Light on that particular forum (for those of you that are a fan of both franchises and have an account over there as well). Since I didn't keep anything the last time I was into Star Trek (which was around the time TNG ended and Voyager began), I have to start my collection all over again (though it was much easier back then, since I didn't have about ten different fandoms that I was into at the same time).

    I'm now re-watching both series on Netflix (nobody uses my account but me, so I have no intention of deleting it. I originally signed up for it to watch the Jurassic World series called Camp Cretaceous, and even though I own the first three seasons on DVD, I still have to re-watch the remaining two as well as the interactive one on Netflix, so that's another reason to keep it). See, I told you I have multiple fandoms! :lol:
